Similar to SF2, I have made a fight list for SF1. This shows who faught who and is as acurate as can be given all the information. Please open the file attached to the next post before continuing…
I have left out the last fight which is Ryu vs Sagat to save file space. This is defo from the huge scar Sagat has.
Adon is promoted to quarter finals as he is Sagats student. Sagat is promoted to Semi-finals as he is the king of the hill. Note that this is the only way that the tournament would work with 12 players.
In the game you face 2 fighters in each country. Notice that the ones that make it to the quarter finals are all 2nd players (i.e. the harder ones) from their country, and with the exception of Gen, all those that lose in the first round are 1st players.
*Ken vs Joe *- Official artwork (In the background of poster with Ryu doing a blazing kick).
*Ryu vs Ken *- Known fact that Ryu beat Ken in SF1 (In SFA I think)
*Eagle vs Adon *- Art from SFA shows Eagle and Adon pre-match.
*Geki vs Mike *- Poster from SF1 (In the background of poster with Ryu in stace position in front of Mount Rushmore).
*Ryu vs Adon *- Known fact that Ryu beat Adon in SF1 (In SFA I think)
*Mike vs Birdie *- SFA3 dialog suggests this happened. Mike and Birdie know each other in SFA3 (both in each others endings). The only SF1 charachter Birdie meets is Mike, and one of his quotes is along the lines of “Oh, what!? … Before? I looked pale because I was sick”, so he must have said it to Mike (Bison).
*Mike vs Sagat *- No proof but I think this is why Mike was made a Shadaloo boss. He must have impressed them by making it to the semi-finals in SF1. Makes sence if you think about it.
*Ryu vs Gen *- No proof but if someone was to beat Gen, it would have to be Ryu. Not because Ryu is better, but because Gen may let him win so that Ryu becomes a great warrior someday.
*Lee vs Geki *- No proof but I think Geki had some links to Shadaloo as Vega seems to share similarities with him. Also, I think Lee was an agent against Shadowloo but no proof as such.
Anyone have any views on my matches? Please let me know.
